“…The Five Manners of Death … takes us on a fast-paced ride … so filled with twists and turns that it leaves us breathless. North gives us just the right details to make every scene happen at a place we recognize and make every character a person we have known at some time.”
Martin Hegwood, author of Jackpot Bay
One of the best things about The Five Manners of Death—and there are many—is that none of the characters are who they appear to be. If you like plot twists and surprises, you’ll love Darden North’s fifth novel, a fast-moving story of crime and deception in the modern South.
